-day suspension of a tobacco product sales permit. reason for suspension: violation of state law and the san francisco health code which p tobacco products. director's case no. smk12-06. we will start with the appellant's agent and you have seven minutes. >> thank you. abraham -- appearing on behalf of mr. ahmed. the reason for the appeal is the decision of the department is that it is overbroad and punitive. in addition we request a -- that the board review de novo the denial of the exemption request that the appellant submitted timely in a timely fashion. the smoking of huka pipes and the enjoyment of the camaraderie that occurs around that have great cultural significance. unfortunately, the smoking ban in san francisco allowed the huka bar to fall through the cracks of that regulation. as i stated in my brief, mr. ah med because he is a muslim is not able to sell alcohol and it does not comply with regulations regarding bars or tafns s -- taverns so he could not fall within the limited exemption to the ban. when he submitted the exemption he put a little box written next to i

cheryl because i've seen her walk the bicycle on the sidewalk. i'm sure she obeys the laws. what i would like to see diminished is when buys bicyclists go through the red light, and they make aan obscene gesture and told where to go. i've seen where bicyclists are dragged from their bikes and beaten up by irate pedestrians. and we want to put a stop to that. >> thank you. this is followed by robin brasso. >> good afternoon, board, my name is dennis valins. i'm a bicyclist here in san francisco who happens to make my living driving a cab. it gives me a unique perspective because i'm able to see two sides of the issue. one, when i'm on my way to work, or when i'm going to see a show, or the other side, when i'm at work. there are three areas i would like to talk about and some ideas that i have to improve safety. the first is market and octavia, which was mentioned earlier. it is an accident waiting to happen the way it is set up now. an idea i've always had, which i thought would be really cool, which reminds me of some things they do in davis, with signage, is a long, gradual, sloping bi

heavily impacting not only chinatown but richmond and sunset district. i really am appreciative of the law enforcement and community-based agencies that are here with us today. how they have really worked together to try to crack down to make sure people are aware of these scams and we can as a city kind of move forward to prevent them for the future. so this hearing is on a number of these types of scams that have happened over the past few months. they tend to target older chinese women in san francisco. since january of this year there have been a series reported. again, it is older asian or chinese women. it involves the theft of jewelry and money obtained under false pretense. nearly 50 of these cases have been reported in san francisco. it's totaled over $1.5 million of losses in cash and jewelry. many of these cases also again have taken place not only in chinatown but also sunset and richmond district. similar cases also have been reported in new york, chicago, boston and seattle. i wanted to invite up a number of the reps from our law enforcement and community agencies from the po

the law or against the light or doing any unlawful. i want to thank you for considering the change on this corridor. there are two additional points. i was involved in the plan and development for the last two years. first and foremost the strongest feeling is that this is about safety for all road user. it was never just a bike plan. this is what neighbors and community organizations have stressed for several years now. i am a member of the north of panhandle association, and i can't remember how many articles there were published. not only published in our newsletter but that gets hand delivered to 3500 residents in the neighborhood. our side of masonic. and second i want to commend mta for recommending the most comprehensive outreach undertaken. it was almost like someone would have to decide not to hear about this to avoid the mailings and post cards and e-mails and door-to-door contact. and i want to mention about the north panhandle neighborhood group. with they took a survey of the residents, 80% of the people supported. >> elias sumari. the last person that submitted a card

, and this is definitely a great birthday present. you know, i've known scott weaner for many years. we went to law school together, and i think something he said about our youth today is something that is very, very important for us to remember. you know, as youth, you always have the concept of the invincibility of youth and we've all had that. you're a young person, you don't think that anything can happen to you. but the reality is that for folks who are part of this newer generation, they didn't go through that. and i think it's important for us to underscore the severity of this disease, of this illness, and it's still des mating many communities. and it is especially low-income communities, communities of color, you have gay african-american men, latino men infected on a daily basis. people forget we still have people dying of aids. i had a close friend of mine who recently passed away of aids, michael goldstein, and he was an advocate for hiv prevention for finding a cure for hiv. and you can think of so many michael goldsteins. and dr. colfax and other people mentioned that. their memory lives on

's what i would like to get on to the public record that by law and by the rules, it should be included in the hiring process because i myself would have made notice of other people that there is a possibility of employment through wood house. on other matters of it being a historic site, they demagnetize it so it doesn't get as reactive. they don't even do that anymore, so the other part when they had to get wildlife, i like fishing out in front there, i like to get 67 pounds, but when you go looking around the house there, i think they're going to be -- a lot of neighbors are making a lot of noise and they want to do some legal type of maneuver, they can, but if you're going to get this project done and have already issued the rfp, i think it's time for this commission to make a decision that's going to be very important. i see four people here, their livelihoods, this has dragged on for a long time and they have complied with nearly everything that's required. i looked over the package and that's all i have to say. i tried to speak civilly. thanks. >> and we appreciate that, thank yo

law, the health codes, learning to build coalitions, getting to know supervisors. and i would ask you to reappoint me so that i can continue my work on behalf of all san francisco's animals. thank you. >> thank you. susanna, i did have a quick question. first of all, thank you for your service on the commission already. could you speak to one issue or a legislation that you took particular interest in over your term as a commissioner? something that you worked on that you prioritized during your term. >>> okay. yes, i think the first thing that comes to mind is the fate of the ferrel cat kohl i inin the west end of golden gate park. and i was asked by community leaders to come out and look at the site. and we talked with rec and park about maintaining good habitat for this established colony. so, i think in general ferrel cats and wildlife and the indoor action between them, but that's an issue that i was involved with with the community. >> thank you. >>> um-hm. >> so, last but not least we have shari o'neill. >>> good afternoon. i am dr. shari o'neill and i've been a practicing vete

knowledge or there be any continuity. i was born and raised in chicago and i practiced law for 50 years. mayor daly, the real richard daly, he ran the city with an iron fist. but everything he did was open and [speaker not understood]. he was well known because that was when he was asked, why only a citizen [speaker not understood], one of his sons, he said, if you can't give it to your kids, who can you give it to? well, that's something he did in chicago, but everybody [speaker not understood]. here it's different and i think the mayor could learn a lot. mayor daly, i'm talking about. everything is handled differently. but the end result is the same because the two institutions that were designed for protection of open government have been [speaker not understood]. am i finished? >> you can finish your sentence, please. >>> you know who they are, the task force who will have new members who never attended the meetings, mr. capell the only exception, and we know about the ethics commission which has done nothing, nothing in all the years it's had referrals from the task force. thank yo

of applause for dr. colfax, please. (applause) >> to have a reinvest and recovery act, our stimulus law with the leadership of leader pelosi, of our mayor, of our supervisors, and our community to have $9-1/2 million given to this city and to this area for this. but not just for this, but everybody's already setting this this morning, the local impact, the state impact, the national impact, and indeed the international impact. and i represent a region that is 50 million people. california, arizona, nevada, hawaii, it's a three territories and three countries in the pacific. and i could tell you that i have moved around my region. i've been working with the hiv/aids and other communities throughout our region. do you know how many people have said to me, i got my information through san francisco? (applause) >> that is something to be really proud of. you know, i'll tell you a little bit of a personal story as we -- i move on. imagine september 16th, 1991, your young 29 year old, gay man living in washington, d.c., fulfilling your dream to be a lobbyist. and your physician calls. hi, sam

overwhemingly fear and coerced and overwhelmed with emotions. your in-laws, cousins. and follow instruction. also given the impression that this perpetrators, they believe they are using application drugs to make their victims unconscious and follow instructions. there's no evidence so far, even when i was working in hong kong, we never found any evidence on that. but there is a strong belief in that. second thing i want to say is language barriers. we found out in ones we have attacked in san francisco we find there is a huge limitation in this language services. i'm helping and actually i was donating a lot of my personal time in translating personal documents because they don't have an officer who have capacity of getting document translated.i covered my points because -- >> i just want to say thank you for your work. i really believe you go across the entire city above and beyond and you have done a lot of volunteering of your time. i'm sure you have done this a lot. i just want to say thank you for your service. it is really important. we rely a lot on you in the city. there should be

on the street handing out the rules of the road to bicyclists who don't obey the law. the same thing for pedestrians who jaywalk or do other things that are extremely egregious and could cause injury and to drivers, being able to hand them out to them. this would be a transportation safety issue, and i know that fmta does have federal funding. i hope that you will consider this, because it would really be helpful. and i think that it would be good-will for the bicycle community to have a program like this, bicycles monitoring out of bicyclists. not easy but something we should look at. >> [indiscernible] >> good afternoon. barry -- with the san francisco cabdrivers association. you have ignored the three years of meetings that we had discussing a fair way to go about this process without jeopardizing what people have worked for her whole career. in looking at some of the e-mails, a lot of chatter going on, director hyneke [sounds like] -- in a previous board meeting he said some of the money will be towards illegal limo and taxi enforcement. it's not good for cabdrivers
